The universal law

 

Points of attraction

1. Joy, Love, Appreciation
2. Passion, Enthusiasm, Happiness
3. Optimism, Hopefulness
4. Contentment, Boredom
5. Frustration, Overwhelment
6. Disappointment, Doubt, Worry
7. Blame, Anger, Revenge
8. Hatred, Jealousy
9. Insecurity, Guilt
10. Fear, Grief, Depression

I know, it’s the same list as the emotional guidance scale, I just switched the name to Poins of Attraction.

They are one in the same.

Think about the law of attraction, it’s not just some interesting concept someone came up with, it really is a universal law.

The law of attraction goes like this; similar things are attracted to each other, even your thoughts and emotions.

Thoughts conjure up emotions inside us. A lot of what we give our attention to is right here before us.

We are in physical bodies that have adapted to surroundings, we’ve developed senses around these bodies and the world we live in.

The law of attraction (if it talked) could never say “No” to you, all it does is match you up with more of whatever you have going on inside you.

This can be really annoying or extreamly helpful depending of how you use it.

In conclusion, where you’re at on the emotional guidence scale is exactly what you are attracting.

But don’t freak out if your not where you’d like to be, just review my post about emotional guidance, and stick with me as I try to explain the rest.

Decoding emotions part two

I have included the Emotional Guidance Scale that I adapted into a shorter and simpler version of Jerry and Esther Hicks scale. In my last post I explained how you can use this as a sort of street map of human emotions. It helps to understand the processes we have to go through in order to feel good.

We know that if we were just feeling completely depress (at the bottom of the scale) and we find ourselves feeling very angry, we are moving in the right direction.

Or observing someone close to you go from being kind of quiet and alone (but you haven’t thought of them as depressed) to angry at everything and everyone, you now know to let them get through their anger. Don’t talk them back down into depression. Offer them a distraction, or something to be hopeful for, or just stay out of their way.

They might move through disappointment, or overwhelment, but you’ll know they’re just doing what’s natural in order  to feel a little bit better, and a little bit better.

We make emotions black and white, good or bad, and that’s fairly true, this is emotional sub categories, and better doesn’t always mean good. Sometimes it’s just better than before. Moving in the right direction makes all the difference in the world, and that is good!

There is more to this, stick with me, I’ll get to the good stuff.

First, I’m going to share some things I have found that help me move up the scale:

  1. A distraction; I think this is best when somethings really stuck in my mind and I can’t move away from it. (We’ll get to why that happens later on) I use two different types of distractions, my exact distractions may or may not work for you, but you will find what does.

Distraction # 1; This consumes all my focus so that I have to concentrate on that one thing in the moment.

Reading a book is my first choice, that’s not always possible, sometimes I learn to play a song or musical instrument. If I’m lucky an interesting documentary can be found. These things consume all of my focus, and I enjoy them.

 

Distraction #2; The mindless distractions; something so simple you’d typically find it mundane, like washing and drying all the dishes or cleaning all the grout lines between your bathroom tiles. I sort of take my “aggression” out that way.

Coloring helps me, I don’t care about the end result or if I finish, I’ll just color until I’m sick of it, when I stop and look up I’m in a whole new mindset.

You could take a nap, or meditate. Lose yourself in music if you’re a musical person, I’ve done that one just by default since I was a kid.

Any project that’s already started I can perfect.

Better yet, an animal person can get lost in cuteness. I brush my pig, he climbs into my lap and sleeps, at that point all is well in my world. I’ll pet a cat until its purring; hold my iguana until he’s so asleep that he’s a limp noodle.

 

  1. Make a list of positive aspects;

This way you can choose to stay stuck on that subject or move away from it. Either way you’re good. I have a whole journal dedicated to positive aspects, and I prefer to start with those things that are on my mind. I care deeply and desperately want to change my negative feelings into positive ones.

I’ll put the subject at the top and underline it, and then I number 1-10. Once I’ve listed 6 or 7 positive aspects I almost can’t stop. It’s just getting started that’s a little bit of a challenge, and then you find yourself listing things like #34- beautiful and captivating eyes.

Do this instead of pros and cons list, do this for the person you love the most, and the person you hate the most, for the car you have, for the car you want. No matter what, only list the positive aspects, any subject is game. Mine is usually people, but that’s me, you may be different.

  1. Focus wheel.

I focus on the thing and how I want to feel about it.

 

In the center of a piece of paper write a statement that is a complete truth; but make it a positive statement.

Example; “we connect in a gaze across a crowded room to find each other” not “I want him so bad but he never even notices me, except that one time at the water fountain…”

 

I mark lines around my circle like it’s a clock. You can do more or less. In each “hour” of my clock I write a statement that supports a good feeling similar to the one in the middle.

 

But that’s enough for tonight. I do hope this reaches people. Feel free to contact me.

Decoding emotions

I use this to figure out where I might find myself next and where others are. Understanding where others are helps you see through their more negative aspects and into better qualities that you will see when they reach the higher emotions on the scale.

The higher on the scale a person is the more complete that person is. The lower emotions show how disconnected they are from who they really are.

 

Emotional Guidance Scale

  1. Joy, Love, Appreciation
  2. Passion, Enthusiasm, Happiness
  3. Optimism, Hopefulness
  4. Contentment, Boredom
  5. Frustration, Overwhelment
  6. Disappointment, Doubt, Worry
  7. Blame, Anger, Revenge
  8. Hatred, Jealousy
  9. Insecurity, Guilt
  10. Fear, Grief, Depression

 

I’ve adapted this list to from 22 emotions into 10 using the Emotional Guidance Scale from Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks (a book I’ve relied on since 11th grade) I’ve seen different scales like this so think of it more as an outline.

 

You can’t jump from the bottom straight to the top, but if you pay attention you can catch yourself and find a way to feel better before you even get to the bottom. Don’t worry if you do catch yourself somewhere on the lower part of the scale, you can climb back up, and it gets easier with practice.

 

If I’m at number 10, my goal is to get to number 7. I try not to talk or make decisions during those times because they will mostly be bad decisions.

 

Once I’m at 7 I reach for number 3.  Once you make it that far 1 and 2 will just naturally come along.

 

There are more uses for the scale, but for now I’m tagging this blog in hopes it will make it to whoever might need some help feeling better. I do plan on relating other (more interesting) topics once I figure out how to put it all into words.
